Summary: I bought this mainly to move streaming from my laptop to TV, and keep my laptop out of that loop. I wasn't too crazy about working my disks like that for very long. This box and software does exactly as the documentation states.
Pros: - Fast, easy setup right out of the box - Product does exactly what is advertised (so far)
NSA320 is the best price/performance NAS I could find
19 March 2014
Summary: First, the most important piece of info - After being slightly disappointed with write speeds in the high 30's, I started researching tweaks and found two very fruitful suggestions: Go into your computer's network adapter settings, and 1) Turn off the protocols that you aren't using (in my case,...
Summary: The ZyXWk NSA320 is a nice solution for a home NAS. With 2 bays and outboard storage, you can serve a lot of content in a residential setting. It has most of the usual sorts of things like a web server, ftp server, time machine server, iTunes server, backup scheduler and what not as either stock or...
Summary: I own a DNS320 for past few months and recently purchased NSA320 from Amazon. DNS320 from DLINK is a great unit with good support from online community for installing ffp and other unix utilities. I was able to install ffp pretty quickly on DNS320 and NSA320.
Summary: Title says it all. Got the NSA320 for a steal compared to Synology or other devices to upgrade my old DNS-323 Installed 2 WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB drives, configured the Zyxel in RAID 1 and started copying around 200GB of movies to stream to Android/iOS.
Summary: I bought this with a great dose of skepticism since some reviews weren't good. Everything worked really well for me, put two disk in JBOD it worked immediately; I use OSX so I was concerned about the windows SW but the web interface is working fine for what I do.
Summary: Upgraded from and concurrently used with a Zyxel NSA-220 plus. Much improved but not a magnatude of order in any respect. At this point, using the Twonky Media Server is nice for windows but takes extra time to provision for use after boot up. On the fence with Twonky.
Pros: Excellent value, quieter than a mouse, easy hardware set up, decent quality for the price. Completely DLNA compliant. Nice efficient kernel and decent server & client interfaces.
Cons: Archaic BIOS update process - could be harder for less than technical folks. No Linux client(s), buggy system time set-up - network time default with time zone needs improvement. After aggressive use (NAS TO NAS & NAS to Cloud back up, sync & publish as example) requires reboot to attain normal o...
Summary: As noted above, this actually supports Mac OSX clients with native filesharing and Time Machine support.
Pros: One of the least expensive and most capable of the dual bay Marvell Kirkwood based NAS's. * 512MB RAM (most others have 128-256) * Feature-ful firmware * Ability to easily install optional packages from ZxXEL for more functionality * "Hackable" in multiple ways: Will run shell-scripts off HDD or ...
Cons: CPU is underpowered to support full-speed transfers over network, but I'm not complaining.
